Entry 777

The Beauty of Being

Fred Jüssi is a philosopher of the outdoors who, standing at the crossroads between nature and culture, has given deep consideration to the fundamental questions of being human. Observing life through the eyes of a biologist, nothing human is alien to him. In this day and age, there is a lot of talk about success and hard work. This documentary is about fruitful idling. It is a praise of dolce far niente. A hymn for living slowly. Meandering along nature’s secret trails, gazing at clouds passing by, for hours on end, and falling into the sweet embrace of smoke rising from a campfire, we leave city noise and economic growth far, far behind. As Fred Jüssi puts it: sometimes you just have to be sinfully slothful, and all by yourself.
